It might be worth it if fanclub got preferential seating (i.e. best seats in a reserved seating scenario).
Common sense is not as common as you think.
jaymz: The club offers more than just pre sales tickets. It has a load of other fan stuff in there.
What you get in the initial signup is:
Personalized Membership Card
Introductory Letter from a Band Member
Printed Autographed Band Photo
So What! 4 issues per year
Membership - TShirt
2010 Member Package
For a big fan of Metallica (like myself) this is worth the $85 alone
jaymz:Johnk: I also cant find pricing on the ticketmaster site, but $150 is kinda what i was expecting.
I see tickets go on sale to members of the fan club first, any one here a member of the fan club?
Sure am, and I see the Presales for MetClub members starts on 12noon 4th May!
Johnk: Do you know if fanclub members can buy multiple tickets??
ajobbins: Just booked my flights. Flying up at 10am on Wednesday then home at 7pm Sunday.
Now, who's couch can I crash on for 4 nights?
